Darren Cassey

More than a quarter of motorists make up the number of miles they drive each year, putting them at risk of paying too much.

Figures released by price comparison site uSwitch show that 27 per cent of motorists guess their annual mileage when applying for car insurance. This puts them at risk of overpaying or even invalidating their policy.
